We are looking for a talented, passionate Staff Software Engineer to help shape and drive the

We move quickly and use a core stack of Java / Kotlin / Spring Boot / JPA / Hibernate / Kafka /

At SoFi, you'll become part of a new kind of finance company whose ambition is to help our

members achieve financial independence and reach their goals. We aim to be at the center of our

members' financial lives, and to help every member get their money right. We created student

loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a

modern approach to lending and personal finance.

Next we expanded our products and services across loans, wealth management, and insurance.

SoFi Money—a modern take on a checking or savings account--is our newest innovation and

disruption to the financial services industry. SoFi has achieved significant growth, with ambitious

plans ahead, but to continue this growth we need great talent. And that starts with you.
